NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- This cat just got one of its 9 lives back.

University of Baltimore Professor Betsy Boyd spent $19,000 on a kidney transplant to save the life of her 18-year-old cat, Stanley.

Boyd said Stanley is almost human to her and she didn't think twice about spending the money on the transplant -- even though her husband canceled plans to buy a new car.

She says Stanley has given her a new perspective on money and life and said it was worth every penny.

Boyd just celebrated Stanley's 18th birthday on Saturday, March 10th.
